What secrets lie buried in the treaties of man? Guest Erik Deckers asked this question and came up with his new book, Mackinac Island Nation. It’s a satirical look at the government and islands. And Michigan. And how to pronounce things. This episode was recorded on June 17, 2019, on WPRK FM.
On this episode of Odd Numbers, we get to the bottom of Uncomfortable Brunch with hosts/curators Joshua David Martin and Kat Whitacre. The long-running monthly film event is moving venues but will continue making people cringe with movies that feature topics that are not dinner table topics. They are, however, perfect for the brunch crowd! This episode was recorded on June 10, 2019, on WPRK FM. To a Certain Degree is a weekly radio show on WPRK featuring makers, artists, and professionals who are doing something neat.
Author Rebecca Renner is on this episode of To a Certain Degree. While she doesn't just write about Florida, she's passionate about the environment and the sometimes inaccurate portrayal of the sunshine state and its residents. Listen as we discuss that, plan an Instagram petting zoo, and her journey to becoming a writer. This episode was recorded on June 3, 2019, on WPRK FM.

No matter how passionate you are for your passion project, there are going to be some challenges along the way. Take starting an opera company, for example. Sounds easy, right? It doesn’t, and it wasn’t, but Nicole Dupre is celebrating two years as the creative director of Opera del Sol. The non-profit is her love letter to a genre that typically doesn’t get a lot of love, and she’s learned a lot about how tenacious you have to be to keep things rolling. Enjoy!
Right brain. Left brain. Why choose? Examples of artists who can math and engineers who write music abound, so let’s get rid of this limiting labeling system. Mehnaz Khan is a great example of thinking with both hemispheres. She initially went into the business and IT world, and is now painting and designing spaces. Take a listen to how she got there!
Banks Helfrich returns to the WPRK studio, and we recycle very few of the jokes from his first appearance. In fact, it's 100% all new. This episode of Odd Numbers had the theme of connections, which not only ties into his show, Black Cow Jumps, we also realized that we have a connection dating back 25+ years. Thanks Fringe Festival!
